The days are getting longer, the flowers are starting to bloom, and it’s time to shed your winter coat for a windbreaker. This weekend it has finally arrived. Spring has sprung.
The arrival of Spring often marks the beginning of a fun-filled season of sports, picnics, gardening, and other outdoor activities.
While fun, these activities also pose risks so we compiled a list of the top Spring safety tips to help keep you and your loved ones comfortable and safe this season.
Before you head out for a bike ride check your helmets to make sure they fit properly. Additionally, if the helmet has been in a previous accident, check to make sure it will still function properly. If you have any doubt about the integrity of the helmet, replace it.
Save your skin.
Even though it may not be very hot, the sun can still cause damage to skin. Making sure you utilize sunscreen during outdoor activities will help protect you from sun burns and potentially skin disease.
Tune up toys.
Snow, rain, sleet, and simply lack of use during the winter months can cause outdoor toys to malfunction. It is always a great idea to check brakes, tires, chains, and other moving parts on toys to make sure they are prepped for safe operation.
As the days get warmer and you are more active, it is important to drink plenty of water. Not only will drinking water cool you down, it will replenish your body of fluids lost during spring activities.
Check your grill.
Spring is a great time to break out the barbeque and grill up burgers and hotdogs. Before you do so, check to make sure it is still in proper working condition with no gas leaks and is far enough away from eaves and siding to prevent potential fires.
Even though the weather is nice, using the proper safety attire when doing lawn work is important in reducing your risk of injury. At a minimum, wear shoes with toe protection and good traction, jeans, gloves, and eye protection.
